National Picnic Month

We're kicking things off with a theme for the whole month - picnics! As the warmer weather is finally here, it's the perfect time to get outdoors and enjoy tasty snacks with friends. 

To help you engage your audiences throughout this month, we've created a quick animation all about the best picnic spots. The video ends with a question to spark engagement. 

But remember, as all elements are customizable, you can always turn this into your favorite picnic foods, outfits or whatever you fancy!
